Can anyone with a Vita vouch for what Disgaea game I should pick up if I’m only really interested in one? I played the original Disgaea on PS2 back in the day, but haven’t touched the series since then. They’re all on sale now for Golden Week (Disgaea 1 and 2 for $5.99, 3 and 4 for $14.99 IIRC).

Was going to get .hack, but looks like i'd get bored fast. I also have way too many games I haven't played like Gravity Rush 1 & 2.

 

Game will get cheaper eventually, so rather wait and not buy just because it's on sale. Going to see if Sony has a Golden week 2 sale?

odds are low it will drop further in price.  They don't print alot of copies for the .hack series in the past so I doubt they started now.

two is worth playing as it is really easy and was the only serious attempt at them telling a story. I  dont rec three because the writing is painfully bad and they break the fourth wall nearly every sentence.

4 has a demo for the vita and is cheaper physical on ps3.  I think 3 is also cheap on ps3.  the reason being the vita version is an enhanced port for both 3 and 4 iirc.

Finally! Just got the platinum for God of War. What a hell of a ride! I really enjoyed the game but those damn trials were not enjoyable. It got to the point where I saved them for the end game and just wanted to get them over with lol

Yeah, I did the trials in post-game as well and that was when I dropped the difficulty from Normal to Easy since there are no difficulty trophies. Why raise my blood pressure when I don't have to? :D

There was a day or two I didn’t get on to play at all so I’d say just under 2 weeks. I didn’t use any guide until the end to finish up a couple collectibles and to find the last few ravens I missed so I’d say searching every nook and cranny as I played for those damn things is what really extended my play time the most. If I would have used a guide the entire time I think it can easily be done 100% in a week. That might sound like a negative thing but the production values and pure fun on the game are well worth it. I actually really appreciate games like this where I can go all in and finish it in a reasonable amount of time rather than most games I can never see the end of the tunnel without totally dedicating all of my time and ignoring every other game that comes out or that sits in my backlog.

Did you get an email with a theme from Sony as congratulations as they did for those who platinum'ed Horizon? I try not to get too into trophies, but Im really considering going for the platinum even though I need to move onto the next game in my backlog.

Agree 100%. This is what killed a lot of Eastern games for me. They don't respect your time at all

I much prefer a 10 hour game to a 60 hour game. 60 hour games were nice as a kid with limited money and extra time but now with extra money and limited time, preferences have changed.

No email.....yet lol

Who knows though. I know Horizon did it but if I remember correctly they didn’t start sending them out right away. Also, they may have just done that because it was a new IP and perhaps they were trying to build (more) positive hype around it.

Now that God of War is off my plate I’m not sure what to tackle next...go back to barely chipping away at my current 70 hour playthrough of Nioh Complete Edition or slap the VR headset on and rot my brain cells with some Rick and Morty or the other 100 games I’ve bought and haven’t played yet haha

“Only” racing game I ever played on a console.

Fixed it.

For $20 it’s worth it, but it’s not as good as the past GT’s

I disagree. The quantity of content is way less, but quality has gone way up. Previous GTs were chock full of cars and tracks, but they were mostly cosmetic and physical modeling was lackluster. Contrast that with GT Sport which has a tighter focus and every car is modeled beautifully. Online at S-rank is also the cleanest I’ve ever played outside of iRacing. Well worth the $20.

Places pretty much last in racing games.... GT has fallen.
You may love it, but you are in the minority.

I've got a wheel and pedal setup, paid for multiple years of iRacing, play on PC mostly, I mean, I'm definitely not mainstream. GT Sport has value for what it is. At $20, it's not even bad.

To be clear... I’m not saying GT Sport is garbage...
It used to be GT series, and then the also rans.
Now it’s Forza, then everyone else. F7 has an 11 point lead over GT Sport on metacritic, which I don’t agree with them all that much, but that’s a large margin.

GT Sport just isn’t what it used to be, disappointed when it came out.. was hoping for it to be the king again.
I got the steel book version for $30ish a while back (BB?) or I’d have jumped on the $20 deal.

Good, but not the best anymore (sadly)

It's actually Burnout Paradise. Sorry, but nobody else comes close to Burnout for great racing games.

Nah, Forza Horizon 3 for me. Then Burnout Revenge (or even BO3) trumps Paradise.

Construe that position however you want, but your second paragraph exemplifies your defense of these practices as you put forth the hyperbole that we don't own any games we buy and you can either unethically steal from companies or support them by accepting the practices without even acknowledging the ones that don't pad their wallets with the "standard practice" of charging fees to play online. Scolding me for stating that these dumb apologist stances lead to further limitations and more fees is a bit hypocritical given what you followed that with, but I wouldn't expect anything less from fanboys in their designated thread who seem content to pay for something that was previous free. You're given a few free games a month, with the incentive to buy every console to fully benefit from it, and you're given the opportunity to pay them discounted prices to buy more games. But I don't think that allows for the compliance the business model is escalating towards. Net neutrality passed and will inevitably happen, and I see people adopting the same "we don't own the internet anyway, every ISP does it" attitude in defense of what essentially results in more corporate exaction.

My gaming heyday was back when games were finished on release and online gaming was free (though it still is on 2/4 platforms). I'm against all of the micro-transaction and premium content policies, and anything else implemented that I see as taking advantage of the consumer. Microsoft started charging people to play online, Sony followed suit. The XB1 limits game sharing to the owner of the game, and I wonder how long it'll take Sony to do the same. People should realize they're encouraging these bad practices instead of denying it and defending the companies for starting them.

There's so much wrong with this post it hurts my head.

First off, fact is not hyperbole. We lease our PS4 games.

second, bringing up your age to make you sound like some sort of authority is silly. Guess what, I grew up with coinops and intellivision. Whoopty do.

Third, and your greatest flaw, is continuing to make assumptions about people. Guess what, I've been railing against all the same things you have for ages. I despise pay-to-win, loot boxes, almost all DLC, paywalls, anti-consumer copy protection/drm, and the Not So Slow erosion of consumer rights in the gaming industry. Again, whoopty do.

Because you know where we differ? I believe that if someone is misinformed, or relying on an illogical argument, Etc you correct them.

It's not my fault that you can't get past the difference between explanations of something and defending something. Point Blank, Explaining a position is not defending it. Conflating those two concepts is a relatively recently widespread plague on our society.

So yeah, when someone suggests, for example, that PS plus fees should be pre-loaded into the initial launch price, I will do my best to help them understand why that is a ludicrously bad decision for Sony to implement. That doesn't mean I'm defending anything, it means I'm explaining something. Your inability to differentiate that is something you really need to work on.

That you think explanation of something condones or encourages it is detrimental to everything important about human communication, education, and understanding. You don't hide the opponent's point of view, and you don't let people misrepresent it. You put forth the best argument for both sides, even if people like you decide you're the enemy for doing so.
